A craft with multiple lights, 1 red blinking light, in a saucer type shape in flight and hovering near a main road.

I was driving home from my dads house on New Circle when I saw a really bright light up in the sky, at first I thought it was a star. Then I saw it was in fact an object of some type, though I couldn't really make it out. I passed this figuring it was just some helicopter hovering perfectly above the road. Then, maybe 5 minutes later, I was still on New Circle between exit 5A and 5B (I was getting off at 5B, onto Versailles Rd.) when I saw a low flying object slowly come down at an angle towards the ground as if to land (though the airport is not over there and I don't know of any airstrip in that direction). I at first thought it was a plane but then the object stopped in mid-air, hovering. It had at least 3 bright white lights on it, and 1 red blinking light (thus I thought it to be a commercial plane at first). The shape of it seemed to be pretty thin, shaped kind of like a saucer. It looked to me like it had a flat top and the edges came out at slight diaganols pointing towards the ground. I was not able to get a very good look for long because I was driving and was literally just about at my exit, though I did brake to slow down and get a longer look. I have no clue if it made noise or not, I happened to be listening to my radio very loudly at the sighting. I believe that some others on the road saw it and thought it was something strange as well, as I noticed cars braking abnormally near the object.
